I am looking for ideas on Brides gift to Groom on the wedding day. I want it to be something special that he can keep forever (we are hopeless romantics).
I can sew with a pattern, but not good without one. I like working with clay, but not good at it. I love to paint things.
Any ideas you can give me are appreciated much!!! Even if it is just a tiny push in a direction of an idea, it may get me going on something.

He is very caring & romantic, loves anything hand made, Kind of shy, laid back, not into any sports (makes gifting even harder), He is a Township Supervisor (Elected official) He basically manages all the goings on of the community. His fave colors are blue & black, he loves having fun & making people smile.
I would like to give a gift that reflects all the happiness he has brought to my life, but also all the romance, kindness, & caring he shows me too. I want it to be special, something he can cherish & possibly even carry during the wedding??? <-That part is not a necessity though.
Thanks for your help

Before we got married, when I would need a pocket knife, I would always turn to my honey. He never had one. I would grimace and say "All the men in my family carry pocketknives!". So, after years of saying this to him, for our "pre-wedding" gifts to eachother, I had a really nice pocketknife engraved for him. It had his name, our wedding date, and the sentiment that HE was the man in my life now, so he BEST have a pocket knife! ha ha.

Not handmade, but the sentiment was, and I got it engraved, and made sure it fit on his keyring. It wasn't expensive, it wasn't a big deal, but it was meaningful. That was what I was going for.

Perhaps something for him to use in relation to his job? Like some sort of legal note pad holder thing? Business card holder?

I'm buy (gimace) a fancy, schmancy lap desk for him to use with his Macbook Pro. He's a photog and designer so he's always on his computer. The problem with that is that his wrists hurt from bending them at strange angles. The desk should help him put the computer at an angle that is better for his wrists. What can I say, I want him to be able to hold me for a long time to come!

but you can call me Liz.

How about a scrapbook/photo album type thing of your relationship to date?

I'm not a woman, I'm a force of nature.

fabric paint him a carseat cover?  since he.. um works in his car all the time?

if you can paint you might like leather working...making him  belt or or wallet..

you could fabric paint a wallet?

My first thought was a painting, something small but meaningfull to the two of you.

I actually recieved an pensiylvaina dutch plate with our wedding date on it to hang on the wall... and our names Smiley

I think having something with the union of yourself and the wedding date that can be out in plain view every day is a blessing.. I personally have a hard time remembering the date...

you can perhaps modge podge a glass plate with photos of your happiest moments... or a paint a plate with the cermacoat paints that bake on in the oven.. then that would be a cute hang thing..  I also think creating a family heirloom christmas ornament is kind of cool...  you could woodburn a pretty wooden box  and perhaps get a brass tag engraved to go in the middle of it..    Some Men also like to put their coins in a jar/ large bottle..  Perhaps using etching glass you could personalize  a glass Jar  .. with our wedding date..
